Having stand-alone adventures ready to just plug into a game can be invaluable for a GM. If you got busy during the week and didn't have a chance to plan, just pull one of these out and you're ready go to. That's what Brutal Games is. It's a new fantasy adventure for various editions of Dungeons & Dragons where the players have been captured by the locals and must now survival the deadly Brutal Games. Will they make it out? The module is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In the fog shrouded islands off the coast of the Reign of the Black Wyrm Kings Province, the inhabitants of the Labyrinth Islands enjoy a sport. A game of deadly consequences to the contestants, for the entertainment of the residents. When the adventurers are captured their survival depends upon how well they play. Can you survive the Brutal Games.
Brutal Games is a Full Color Adventure for the most popular fantasy role-playing game in the world available for the latest 5th Edition rule set and the still popular 1st/2nd Edition rules. This adventure takes 3-6 characters of levels 3-5 from the Storm Reef Island in the Wyrm Skull Gulf down to the Labyrinth Isles and into the Black Serpentine Swamps.
This adventure was written as the follow up to WoD-1: Citadel of Terror, and picks up right where that module ends. But Brutal Games can easily be played as a standalone, or slide into your own campaign with ease. The game changes every time you play through the adventure, offering different challenges and different goals with every game. We blended the Hunger Games, the Maze and the Running Man, into this easy to run, adventure.
The campaign's up and over its funding goal with 16 days left to go.
